Srinidhi Raghavan presents
Dixon Place, 4pm

December 23, 2016
Voices, a thematic acclaimed solo Bharatanatyam performance by Srinidhi Raghavan, that premiered to a sold out audience in London, is now in New York City on Sunday February 12, 2017 at 4pm at Dixon Place.
Voices - they are everywhere. Sometimes they are whispers in the wind. At other times, they are cries from the heart, screaming the truth. And almost always, these voices call out to us and lead us down a path, often determining the course of our lives.
The characters we meet in Voices - a powerful king, a young princess, and a playful gopi – are all struggling against a constant din to discern what is right for them. Some succeed and seek the truth while others succumb to fear and choose a path less honorable. Get to know these characters as they clamor to tell us their stories.
Concept and Choreography: Usha Raghavan and Srinidhi Raghavan
Srinidhi Raghavan started learning Bharatanatyam at the age of five from her mother and guru Usha Raghavan, and from guru Malathy Thothadri. Since her arangetram in Chennai in 1998, her experiences with dance have spanned several cultures and countries, including those of Europe, Liechtenstein, Barbados, Canada, the US and India, during the December festival in Chennai. Srinidhi continues to perform in several solo and group shows internationally, often presenting works that are her own choreography. Known for her "precise nritta and apt abhinaya" (The Hindu, Chennai), Srinidhi hopes that her ardent love for Bharatanatyam will endow her with a certain passion to break boundaries and widen her horizons not only in the performing arts but also other avenues of life.
